Welcome to Peter James TV ‘Authors Studio’. I’m excited to share with you the third of our interviews in the ‘Meet The Masters’ series. A brilliant power-house of the crime fiction world, and co-founder of the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival (see below) – as well as being a wonderful champion for new writers… Val McDermid.

I’ve interviewed many of the world’s most popular authors – as well as lots of people related to the publishing world, asking them quick questions that I think would be of interest to anyone who loves books, is an author or a budding author.
I filmed many of these interviews when I caught up with the authors at the wonderful Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate (where I was the programming chair in 2016), and at Thrillerfest, run by the ITW (of which I am International Vice President) in New York – my two favourite crime thriller events!
I’d love to know your comments and any questions, and I will endeavour to answer myself or get answers for you here on my channel.

Val’s latest novel OUT OF BOUNDS is available to order here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Out-Bounds-Val-McDermid/dp/1408706911/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478004944&sr=8-1&keywords=val+mcdermid
